Winter 2024 Updates 

New Music & Studio Updates

I’ve been out of sorts for a while, as it’s been about 7 months since I tore my studio down in preparation of moving to a new house. After several delays, we’ll be ready to start moving later this month, and start the construction of a brand new studio space in our shed. I’m pumped.

In the meantime, I’m working on a new EP which I’m recording in different places around the new house, based on the rooms in which I wrote each song. It’s a drastic change from how I’m used to recording, as I have to set aside big chunks of time to move the studio equipment around the house and make sure I’m getting decent sounds, which leads to more time spent setting up than actually recording. As frustrating and disruptive as that can be, you put more care into something when you have to go out of your way to plan time for it; I’m realizing now that I had gotten into a bad habit of trying to get recording done in short bursts between other things, which makes it feel more like an obligation or inconvenience. When you plan ahead and set the expectation with yourself that you’ll spend a half day doing something like tracking one drum track, you feel more dedicated to it and learn to love the process again.


Other Projects

Back in November, The Han Solo Project had the privilege of playing at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines to support the Iowa Wild’s Star Wars night. We had a great time, and even debuted a new song. Once the new studio is built, I’ll finish writing the new Han Solo Project album, and hopefully that will be out later this year.

YouTube Channel

I haven’t been able to post any cover videos since July, but last month I posted a video discussing my favorite albums of 2023. I plan on doing more random music discussion videos like this as ideas come up–if there’s ever anything you’d like to hear my thoughts on, let me know. Please subscribe to the channel if you haven’t!

I also released the music video for “Wringer”:



I’m working on shows for later this year, but for this spring I just have a couple of acoustic shows lined up. I’ll post more about those when I have the details sorted out.
